Please just wait for the panda scan.

It is merley a follow up.

You can do it tommorow if you would like as it may take a while to complete the scan.
Either way I just want to see if anything was left over.

Please post those results when it finishes.

i tried to go through the panda's page, they asked me to update the version or something

Ok

Time for some housekeeping
  • Click START then RUN
  • Now type Combofix /u in the runbox and click OK


    [list]
  • Posted Image

The above procedure will delete and do the following:

  • ComboFix and its associated files and folders.
  • VundoFix backups, if present
  • The C:\Deckard folder, if present
  • The C:_OtMoveIt folder, if present
  • Reset the clock settings.
  • Hide file extensions, if required.
  • Hide System/Hidden files, if required.
  • Clean System Restore points.

Also delete anything that we used that is left over.
==================================
Go Here and download CCleaner.
Double click on it to install it.
Click on your language then Next then I agree then next again.
When you come to the Installation options window (the next window after clicking next)
Uncheck all but Create a Desktop Shortcut.
Then Click on Install.

After it is installed double click on the icon on your desktop to run it.
Choose Run Cleaner then yes at the prompt to permanently delete files.
It may take a while so let it finish.

After that Click on the icon to the left called Registry
Then click on scan for issues.
Then click on Fix selected issues.
And then yes to making a backup.
It will save it in your MY Documents Folder.
Then Click on Fix all selected issues and yes that you really want to do it.
After that is done then exit out of CCleaner.

You can uninstall it after you use it.
=================================
See if doing all of that will help.

You can try to do either one of the scans again after that let me know how it goes. :)

I don't use the messenger and am required to post the information on the forums.
Don't worry we are almost done. :)
=======================
Not a problem.

Do this then:
Delete these folders\files
C:\Deckard folder
C:\_OtMoveIt folder
C:\Combofix
C:\Qoobox
C:\start_.cmd
C:\kmd

Delete the icons on your desktop that we used.
And anything else that we used.
========================
Then I will need you to reset your System Restore points.
1. Turn off System Restore.
Click on *Start
Right-click *My Computer
Click *Properties
Click the *System Restore tab
Check *Turn off System Restore
Click *Apply, and then click *OK.

2. Reboot.

3. Turn ON System Restore.
Click on *Start
Right-click *My Computer
Click *Properties
*UN-Check *Turn off System Restore*
Check *Turn on System Restore
Click *Apply, and then click *OK.

=========================
After that do the CCleaner instructions please and then try the scan.
